Sam’s Club and Lowe’s have agreed to open stores in an open-air, town-center style of mall proposed for Elk Grove. The overall site is along Highway 99 at Kammerer Road, and would be called Elk Grove Promenade.
It would include offices, apartments, even a hotel. Also, the developers are expecting to sign additional stores selling such items as electronics, shoes, and bedding, as retail analysts believe the Elk Grove / Laguna area is underserved for shopping choices.
City staff have had preliminary plans … with approvals likely next year. The promenade could open in late 2007, after a necessary interchange is built on Route 99.
